Zucchini-Stuffed Chicken Breast

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

The skin of this chicken makes a natural pocket to hold the stuffing mixture in. This is a great recipe for a dinner party, quite easy to make, and very delicious.

I made this with turkey tenderloin. I butterflied the tenderloin, pounded it out, and stuffed it with the stuffing, then wrapped bacon around it. I cooked it a little longer, but it came out wonderfully tender and tasty. I'll be putting this on my rotation list.
